Thats really cool. I imagined some sort of accelerated plasma being created and guided back into the engine via magnetized ducts and wound around long
control chambers where it was then converted into electricity. Its cool they thought to apply a magnetic field to the ionized jet stream to create the
plasma. More thrust is always good.
Ionizing the stream on even conventional aircraft was studied according to what I have read so far. Thats part of the thrill IMO. Making current tech
into newer tech.
I wish I could understand more of it. I will keep reading though. Its a good find. Thanks for sharing.

I bet that there are. I think one day that when it comes to lasers on jets, that only weight and size will be the remaining issues since power seems
like something that can be solved given enough time.
Weight and size to be solved with new material sciences soon enough I am sure.
